Do Registry Operators have to offer dispute resolution policies for registrations during their Sunrise Periods?

Yes, all Registry Operators must offer a Sunrise Dispute Resolution Policy (SDRP), which will allow challenges to Sunrise Registrations related to Registry Operator’s Aallocation and registration policies. This includes on the grounds that the domain names that were registered but do not match the trademark record on which the Sunrise-Eligible Rights Holder based its his/her Sunrise Registration. Because each TLD’s Sunrise Period registration policies can be different, the Registry Operator has discretion when designing its SDRP. A complete SDRP must be included in the TLD Startup Information.
